Veg out with asparagus. Max out the flavour with bacon. ;)

Asparagus with Bacon

Adapted from Tender Vol. I by Nigel Slater


1 pound green asparagus, trimmed, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch segments
1 Tbsp clarified butter
100 g smoked bacon/pancetta, diced


Cook the asparagus in salted water until tender, about 4-6 minutes. Drain and set aside. In a skillet, melt the clarified butter and fry the bacon until nicely browned. Toss with the asparagus and serve.

After reading through this week's entries I am really hungry for asparagus. Your version with bacon sounds like a fine way to start!

I've had bacon with all sorts of vegetables, but never asparagus. It sounds like a great combination.

Asparagus and bacon is such a great combination.
